The Chasm-Randy Alcorn

If you're looking for a quick read that you can finish in an hour to two hours and still get as much from it as possible, The Chasm is for you.  Randy Alcorn paints a vivid allegory to various aspects of the Christian faith while still staying focused on one plotline of the story.
Many will compare this book to Pilgrim's Progress.  I would agree, except I got much more from this then I ever got from Pilgrim's Progress.

God's Promises for the American Patriot-Dr. Richard G. Lee and Jack Countryman

First off, I thought this was a leather book.  As in, full brown leather binding and all that jazz.  It is a leather book, just not the kind I expected.  So just keep that in mind if that persuades you either way.  Now, on to the book.

In Defense of Calvinism

I dislike the term Calvinist.  I don’t like that some people would be quicker to call themselves a Calvinist then a Christian.  But I do firmly believe in what Calvinism stands for and by that I would technically be a Calvinist.  Following is my reasoning of why I believe what I do.  I hope it is to your benefit.

Calvinism is wrapped up in five points called the T.U.L.I.P.  Total Depravity.  Unconditional Election.  Limited Atonement.  Irresistible Grace.  Perseverance of the Saints.

Chaos-Ted Dekker

This is so far my favorite of the series.  Chaos really keeps the reader plugged in from start to finish and doesn't let you go.  You'll definitely want to read the previous books before diving into this one though.

Renegade-Ted Dekker

One of the chosen has gone renegade.
Turning his back on all that he once believed, Billos does the forbidden and enters into a Book of History. He lands in a reality as foreign to him as water is to oil. A place called Paradise, Colorado. He has strange new powers given to him courtesy of a mysterious figure known as Marsuvees Black.
